Owing to the volatility in the global market, State-owned refinery, Petrojam, is today (September 21) unveiling another wave of mixed fortunes for Jamaican motorists and industry giants to contend with.

Petrojam, in its latest update to the closely watched petroleum product pricing index, has advised that come tomorrow 87-octane gasolene will cost 25 cents higher. The fuel option now closes at a new baseline price of J$197.66.

Similar to last week, a 25-cent price increase was also applied to 90-octane gasolene for the second-straight session.

On the other end of the spectrum, price cuts of varying degrees were announced for all remaining products on Petrojam’s index.

It is expected that retailers islandwide will add their markups to the announced prices.
